Proteomics on a chip: promising developments

Electrophoresis. 2001 Jan;22(2):208-16. doi: 10.1002/1522-2683(200101)22:2<208::AID-ELPS208>3.0.CO;2-O.


The field of proteomics is expanding rapidly due to the completion of the human genome and the realization that genomic information is often insufficient to comprehend cellular mechanisms. This considerable expansion of proteomics towards high-throughput platforms is stressing its current technical capabilities. In recent years, technologies in microfluidic and array technologies have appeared for proteomics. These novel approaches might help solve current technical challenges in proteomics. This review presents a general survey of the recent development in microfluidic and array technologies from a proteomics perspective.
